Before the Carroll Creek Bridge project, the artist William Cochran had painted some other murals on buildings in downtown Frederick. His work is NOT your average graffiti. His technique is "trompe l'oeil". The first time Marianne and I saw the above picture we were eating in a restaurant across the street. She said "that man is just staring out the window and not moving!" When we left the restaurant, we finally realized it was a painting and sometime later learned about Mr. Cochran. Below are details from this painting, the adjacent window and another painted window a few blocks away. The last picture shows his canvas for that painting.
